If Sperm Counts Continue Declining Humans Could Become Extinct

If sperm counts continue declining at the current rate, humans could become extinct.

Analyzing nearly 200 studies, researchers have found that the sperm counts in men across North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand have halved in less than forty years. The study found that the decline in men’s sperm counts may also be accelerating.

Sperm Count Declining in the West: Study

Sperm count among men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand has halved in 40 years, according to research warning of fertility risk, though outside experts urged caution about the results.

A review of data collected from nearly 43,000 men in 185 previous studies from 1973 to 2011, found a "significant decline" in sperm concentration, according to findings published in the journal Human Reproduction Update.

The decline was 52.4 percent -- from 99 million to 47 million sperm per millilitre of semen, said the authors.


Fertility Expert Warns Cell Phones Are ‘Cooking’ Men’s Sperm

From the UK Telegraph comes word of a study that demonstrates men who keep their cell phones in their pockets, close to their testicles, risk “cooking” their sperm, possibly making it difficult for them to have children.

Exposure to chemicals could reduce sperm count

More reports detailing the damaging effects of exposure to chemicals have been released. Though important to both women and men, this particular finding is especially important to men. This includes their partners if they are wanting to start a family someday.
